James Macdonald's production officially opened on 9 March following previews from 22 February 2017. It received a string of 5-star reviews, including a rave from London Theatre: "This is an amazing production of a contemporary masterpiece, with some of the finest acting we're likely to see on the London stage this year."
"In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor Nick and his wife Honey to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling." Further information about the National Theatre live broadcast will be announced.
